First Visit

The first thing we will do is ask you about the health complaints which you are chiefly concerned. We would like to get to know you, and understand a few things about you, including:

  • Your family health history
  • Dietary habits
  • Other care you may have had (chiropractic, osteopathic, medical, etc.)
  • Your job
  • And other questions to help understand what you are concerned about and the best way to go about treating the problem.

For your convenience, we have provided our new patient forms on our website, which can be downloaded and printed. These forms should be brought with you to your first appointment. Please print and complete the form below:

A physical examination will be performed by Dr. Weir, which may include x-rays, video motion x-ray, and other diagnostic procedures. In addition, a careful spinal examination and analysis will be performed to detect any structural abnormalities which may be affecting or causing your condition. All of these elements are important components of your total health profile, and vital to the doctor of chiropractic in evaluating your problem.

Doctors of chiropractic spend years learning motion palpation – the art of examining by movement or touch.

An “adjustment,” as doctors of chiropractic use the term, means the specific manipulation of vertebrae which have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. Doctors of chiropractic spend years learning motion palpation and other forms of spinal examining procedures, so that they can administer specific and appropriate spinal adjustments.

Once the doctor has identified the problem, he will begin care by way of these adjustments. Particular attention will be paid to that area of your spine where a spinal misalignment or imbalance  has been detected.

The adjustment is usually given by hand and/or the ProAdjuster system which you can learn more about in our ProAdjuster tab, and consists of applying pressure to the areas of the spine that are out of alignment or that do not move properly within their normal range of motion.

Our adjustments don’t hurt! Our Adjustments are extremely safe and any discomfort during the adjustment only lasts seconds!
